[Official] All Star Wars films released in 4K HDR on Disney Plus: 4KSE with more changes — Page 4

It looks like the 9-movie UHD disc boxset is scheduled for March 31, 2020, so if anyone is beginning work on integrating these new versions into their projects, I would suggest a brief pause to get ahold of the better-compressed source.

IMO it will take several months to have confidence we’ve identified all changes unique to the 19SE and come up with LUTs for a theatrical regrade. The UHD’s will be released at just around the time we’d be in any position to do anything useful with the 19SE, even if we work our asses off from now until then.

And this is all assuming the UHD’s do not contain even more changes. But since at this point Disney’s in charge of the content (and the timeline would be pretty much impossible anyway), I think the crazy revision train has finally stopped. The Maclunkey cuts are the final destination. Welcome to Travesty: Population 3.

I’ve decided that the Maclunkey bit has one nice use. A frame of it can replace that single frame of the other Greedo that has always looked so out of place (if you actually notice it). Other than that I’m sticking with the Blu-ray cut (as the best of the SE cuts).

Macluncky isn’t new footage though. It’s just the last shot of Greedo talking repeated and zoomed in.

SONIC RACES THROUGH THE GREEN FIELDS.
THE SUN RACES THROUGH A BLUE SKY FILLED WITH WHITE CLOUDS.
THE WAYS OF HIS HEART ARE MUCH LIKE THE SUN. SONIC RUNS AND RESTS; THE SUN RISES AND SETS.
DON’T GIVE UP ON THE SUN. DON’T MAKE THE SUN LAUGH AT YOU.

Actually this is pretty good timing as we will have LUTs ready and tested to correct the OT colors. Which will mean we can release corrected versions within days of the commercial release in 4k and hopefully in HDR.

Unless they change the color timing between now and then…

That’s the trick… I’m sure the source master is the same, but the streaming version might be mastered to a different gamma than the discs would be. Also, if the claims of the streaming versions featuring a “fake” blanket HDR pass are true, those may be placeholder HDR grades that differ from what will appear on disc.

Anyone know why we haven’t seen 4K rips of Force Awakens and Rogue One yet?

No idea. Would love to get my hands on these.

Does Chewbacca have a medal in A New Hope? I haven’t seen the movies yet on Disney+ as I am waiting for the service to launch here in Sweden.

Nope ☹️

… I was actually hoping they would do this.
